Couple things about this picture: First, the colors are outrageous. And I love them. Second, the color of the bee is a deep black-purple. Every day for the copyright notice, I select a color from the photo for the color of the letters in the notice. I took a sample of color off the lighter part of her back. Third, while this is a decent crop, it’s got so much on the left side because I wanted to show the relative size of an ant – compared to the bee. The ant’s on the agastache stalk in the upper left of the shot. In other words, that is one big bee!
